The Pacific Northwest offers some unique opportunities to offshore aquaculture. Clean, ocean waters will allow production of high-value, cold-water fish and shellfish species, while high wave and wind energy could provide offshore structures with sources of power. In addition, the region has a strong fishing community capable of participating in offshore operations.

The forum, held September 9-10, 2008, provided an opportunity for an informed discussion of the risks
and opportunities for offshore aquaculture in the Pacific Northwest. The forum will included speakers with a wide range of expertise, legislators, community leaders, scientists and other parties to discuss the potential benefits and risks of this new approach to producing seafood in this region.
